NAME

Test::Smoke::Util - Take out some of the functions of the smoke suite.

FUNCTIONS

I've taken out some of the general stuff and put it here. Now I can write some tests!

Configure_win32( $command[, $win32_maker[, @args]] )

Configure_win32() alters the settings of the makefile for MSWin32.

$command is in the form of './Configure -des -Dusedevel ...'

$win32_maker should either be nmake or dmake, the default is nmake.

@args is a list of option=value pairs that will (eventually) be passed to Config.pm.

PLEASE read README.win32 and study the comments in the makefile.

It supports these options:

  • -Duseperlio

    set USE_PERLIO = define (default) [should be depricated]

  • -Dusethreads

    set USE_ITHREADS = define (also sets USE_MULTI and USE_IMP_SYS)

  • -Duseithreads

    set USE_ITHREADS = define (also sets USE_MULTI and USE_IMP_SYS)

  • -Dusemultiplicity

    sets USE_MULTI = define (also sets USE_ITHREADS and USE_IMP_SYS)

  • -Duseimpsys

    sets USE_IMP_SYS = define (also sets USE_ITHREADS and USE_MULTI)

  • -Dusemymalloc

    set PERL_MALLOC = define

  • -Duselargefiles

    set USE_LARGE_FILES = define

  • -Dbccold

    set BCCOLD = define (this is for bcc32 <= 5.4)

  • -Dgcc_v3_2

    set USE_GCC_V3_2 = define (this is for gcc >= 3.2)

  • -DDEBUGGING

    sets CFG = Debug

  • -DINST_DRV=...

    sets INST_DRV to a new value (default is "c:")

  • -DINST_TOP=...

    sets INST_DRV to a new value (default is "$(INST_DRV)\perl"), this is where perl will be installed when [nd]make install is run.

  • -DINST_VER=...

    sets INST_VER to a new value (default is forced not set), this is also used as part of the installation path to get a more unixy installation. Without INST_VER and INST_ARCH you get an ActiveState like installation.

  • -DINST_ARCH=...

    sets INST_ARCH to a new value (default is forced not set), this is also used as part of the installation path to get a more unixy installation. Without INST_VER and INST_ARCH you get an ActiveState like installation.

  • -DCCHOME=...

    Set the base directory for the C compiler. $(CCHOME)\bin still needs to be in the path!

  • -DCRYPT_SRC=...

    The file to use as source for des_fcrypt()

  • -DCRYPT_LIB=...

    The library to use for des_fcrypt()

  • -Dcf_email=...

    Set the cf_email option (Config.pm)

  • <-Accflags=...>

    Adds the option to BUILDOPT. This is implemented differently for nmake and dmake.

get_cfg_filename( )

get_cfg_filename() tries to find a cfg file and returns it.

get_config( $filename )

Read and parse the configuration from file, or return the default config.

check_MANIFEST( $path )

Read MANIFEST from $path and check against the actual directory contents.

check_MANIFEST() returns a hashref all keys are suspicious files, their value tells wether it should not be there (false) or is missing (true).

get_patch( [$ddir] )

Try to find the patchlevel, look for .patch or try to get it from patchlevel.h as a fallback.

version_from_patchlevel_h( $ddir )

version_from_patchlevel_h() returns a "dotted" version as derived from the patchlevel.h file in the distribution.

get_ncpu( $osname )

get_ncpu() returns the number of available (online/active/enabled) CPUs.

It does this by using some operating system specific trick (usually by running some external command and parsing the output).

If it cannot recognize your operating system an empty string is returned. If it can recognize it but the external command failed, "? cpus" is returned.

In the first case (where we really have no idea how to proceed), also a warning (get_ncpu: unknown operating system) is sent to STDERR.

WARNINGS

If you get the warning get_ncpu: unknown operating system, you will need to help us-- how does one tell the number of available CPUs in your operating system? Sometimes there are several different ways: please try to find the fastest one, and a one that does not require superuser (administrator) rights.

Thanks to Jarkko Hietaniemi for donating this!

get_smoked_Config( $dir, @keys )

get_smoked_Config() returns a hash (a listified hash) with the specified keys. It will try to find lib/Config.pm to get those values, if that cannot be found (make error?) we can try config.sh which is used to build lib/Config.pm. If config.sh is not there (./Configure error?) we try to get some fallback information from POSIX::uname() and patchlevel.h.

parse_report_Config( $report )

parse_report_Config() returns a list attributes from a smoke report.

    my( $version, $plevel, $os, $osvers, $archname, $summary ) = 
        parse_report_Config( $rpt );
get_regen_headers( $ddir )

get_regen_headers() looks in $ddir to find either regen_headers.pl or regen.pl (change 18851).

Returns undef if not found or a string like "$^X $regen_headers_pl"

run_regen_headers( $ddir, $verbose );

run_regen_headers() gets its executable from get_regen_headers() and opens a pipe from it. warn()s on error.

skip_filter( $line )

skip_filter() returns true if the filter rules apply to $line.
